Rally to Support Immigrants Takes Place in Princeton

"More than four hundred protesters rallied against the treatment of immigrants at a rally and candlelight vigil at Hinds plaza in Princeton on on Friday, July 12th. At the Princeton event, a diverse group of speakers denounced U.S. immigration policy and its impact on communities throughout Mercer county and New Jersey.

Between 7 and 8 pm for local organizations including LALDEF, YWCA, Princeton Human Services, RISE, Solidaridad and Faith in New Jersey shared information and resources about grassroots activities to support immigrants. At 8 pm a series of speakers took the stage speaking to different aspects of the immigrant experience and how they’ve been working to support the immigrant community. At 9 pm participants lit candles in a silent vigil for all those held in US detention camps."
